The Bribery Act 2010 came into effect on 1st July 2011. Bribery is defined as giving someone a financial or other advantage to encourage that person to perform their functions or activities improperly or to reward that person for having already done so. The maximum penalty for bribery is ten years imprisonment, with an unlimited fine.
As a result, I confirm that Medinet will commit sufficient time and resources to the development and embedding of an appropriate anti-bribery programme to include:
- a commitment to carry out business fairly, honestly and openly
- a commitment to zero tolerance towards bribery
- the consequences of breaching the policies for employees and managers
- the avoidance of doing business with others who do not commit to doing business without bribery as a ‘best practice’ objective
- the protection and procedures for confidential reporting of bribery (whistleblowing)
- to support key individuals and departments involved in the development and implementation of the bribery prevention procedures

Modern Slavery Statement

How do we source our staff?
Medinet advertise positions on through various social media, online recruitment platforms, gain referrals from those working on contracts for Medinet and by networking.
Medinet does not tolerate any individual, group or organisation who subjects workers to Modern Slavery during their operations. Medinet conforms to regulations set out in legislation.
Medinet is committed to ensuring that our business and chain of suppliers do not tolerate Modern Slavery, forced labour or Human Trafficking. Candidates are vetted accordingly with recruitment guidelines for right to work documentation and working closely with the Home Office when verification is required.
Medinet actively encourages anyone, including colleagues, suppliers, candidates and clients to report any issue or concerns about potential unethical business practices, such as fraud, bribery, slavery or human trafficking and will work with parties to ensure such concerns are investigated properly and dealt with efficiently and effectively.
